Need to talk to someone?

More Filters

It can sometimes be difficult to find support from family members, friends, or like minded people. While you might have a best friend or a support system and network such as groups on social media, you might want to seek support without any social interaction.

Our listeners provide emotional support through active listening. Active listening helps process your emotional distress. The following page can be filtered to seek listeners who provide long-term help and support. You can also browse listeners according to your preferred language as well as for different topics amongst other filters.

7 Cups is a chat site/app that has different options to find a good listener. You can meet new people and text chat with other individuals going through tough times - you are not alone! Everyone goes through a hard time at some point in their lives and we are here for you. Whether you are facing relationship problems, panic attacks, struggling with substance abuse, loneliness, depression, anxiety, or any other mental health issue, our site/app is a safe space based on confidential, anonymous support.

A good idea is to consider what form of support you would like in the first place - we have plenty of options to explore and one of the best ways is to give them a try to find out what works for you. We understand that different people have different needs and preferences. All these support services are appropriate for different situations.

This page can help you seek a trained active listener to talk to through 1-on-1 conversations. These listeners come from different walks of life and all are ready to offer a compassionate listening ear to people who would like to talk to someone else. You can select their username to view their detailed profile page with their shared bio and other information such as whether they have lived experience of mental health conditions or topics, their reviews, as well as their training and other badges. While our listeners do not provide direct advice, their support can help you vent your feelings and concerns in a safe space and you can work together to figure out healthy coping tools.

Listener conversations can vary in duration according to your listener's and your personal availability. Some listeners have the option to schedule chats with them in advance. You can always browse for listeners and leave them a message so that they can get back to you with their availability.

There are several other ways you can find someone to talk to at 7 Cups. These include the group chats and subcommunities. We are glad you are taking the first step towards support!

Our group chat rooms are online chat rooms that serve as different support groups where you can send text messages 24/7. We are a global community with people from all over the world. Some chat rooms include the Sharing Circle room, which is a non-judgemental safe space based on the traditions of AA and similar support groups. This space can prove helpful if you need a group of people to talk to who can listen and get to know you over a long time. Sharing your feelings and experiences as well as listening to those of others can help feel supported. You can expand your support network and make online supportive friends and connections!

On the other hand, if you would like to interact with people and talk to someone over forums, we have dedicated subcommunities for over 45+ topics covering a wide range of mental illness support topics through various sub-forums. Our subcommunities provide support, awareness, events, as well as opportunities to participate in light-hearted icebreakers.

Apart from the above mentioned mental health services at 7 Cups, we have affordable therapy options allowing you to seek online therapy for mental health problems with an online therapist, licensed psychologist, and other mental health professionals. This support is affordable as compared to other online and offline services or other options like support through insurance companies. Therapists are also available to talk to throughout the week on working days.

While our community can help support you after you have lost someone else to suicide, 7 Cups is not to be used in the state of active/passive suicidal thoughts - for such cases, please visit helpful resources such as the Samaritans or National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. For a complete list of helpful resources, click here.

If you would like to gain further insight and helpful information about different mental health topics, you can visit our Community Questions and Answers pages, or read our Expert Mental Health News and Advice articles. Other main features you can explore include our self-help guides and growth paths based on treatment protocols available for free!

The bottom line is, you are never alone - 7 Cups is a community aiming to provide compassion on a global scale. There are various ways to talk to someone at 7 Cups. These include 1-on-1 conversations based on active listening and support through trained listeners, group chats with support discussions and Sharing Circles, and the subcommunity forums. Other features that you may find helpful include the growth paths, community questions and answers, as well as expert advice sections.

ABOUT ME :Hello! I am Gloria, a graduate with a background in Psychology. I am a trained active listener here. 😊 Due to my past & present experiences and passion for mental health & related topics, I have enhanced my knowledge and skills through pursuing Psychology. ⭐️ Hence, I believe that I will be able to effectively listen to and support people in a compassionate and non-judgemental way. All chats are confidential and anonymous (as per the guidelines), so no need to worry, know that it is safe here. 🌻 I would love to help as many people as I can through 7 Cups and am happy to be a part of this wonderful community! ♥️ THINGS TO NOTE : 🟢 means I’m online, and am not busy with other things on 7 cups, so feel free to text me, I’ll reply back soon. 🟠 means I’m busy, with other things on 7 cups (eg. in a chat with other members, in group chats, etc.), but am available to chat, just might take time to reply.  🔴 means I’m offline, so if you do send me a message, and I don’t reply within that day, do message me again after about 2-3 days, since sometimes I might miss those previous messages. And if I STILL don’t reply, that means I have internet issues, or I’m away for a reason - but I’ll make sure to mention it here, if that’s the case and I know of it in advance. 😊 Do keep in mind to be kind, understanding and appropriate while chatting, I appreciate that. 🌻 Do note, that I don’t take chats on topics like Sexual Health and Domestic Violence, for personal reasons. I hope you can find other listeners out here who can offer better support to you regarding these topics. 🍁

Hey there and welcome!I am toastyCabbage, but you can call me anything you really want.  I am a Verified Listener and have been through quite a lot throughout my 22 years of being alive - you can probably tell by all of the categories that I have "direct lived experience" in. What I currently deal withAs of this moment, I'm dealing with heartbreak, my eating disorder and clinical depression. Besides the heartbreak, I've been dealing with the eating disorder and clinical depression for as long as I can remember, but I am getting better slowly! I hope that my experience with those two very sensitive topics can help you feel validated, because it's way more common than you might think.Other things that I can help withI am an experienced dominant in terms of S&M / BDSM and have spent the majority of my time within the DDLG dynamic. However, I do have experience with being a hard dom, so do not be afraid to chat with me about this. If you're unsure if what you want to talk about falls under the umbrella terms of BDSM, then feel free to ask; there are no real guidelines, as long as safety, trust and consent is involved.Please do note that I will not endorse dangerous or illegal behavior and recommend that you seek professional help if you have thoughts about seriously hurting somebody.Be kindWe're all humans at the end of the day, there is nothing more that I want than just to help out and listen to you. I take long term members and prefer it that way, meaning that I'm more than happy to keep in contact with you over a long time instead of one single chat.But hey, thanks for reading. I sincerely hope that you find solutions and answers to your problems as your life goes on. You deserve it just like everyone else.For Norwegian speakersHallo! Takk for at du tar en titt på profilen min, jeg håper at alt står til. Ikke vær redd for å snakke med meg på Norsk, har bodd i Norge så-og-si hele livet. Jeg skriver helst bare på Bokmål, men kan forstå Nynorsk bra nokk.

I love interacting with people & will be very happy helping people deal with discomfort they are facing. I feel, talking to someone anonyms helps you open up on your issues & you get new perspective for your problems. I feel, mental health is more important than physical health & talking to someone definitely helps to improve your mental stability & can guide you in your decision making.(Dear Members, I work full time so my replies can be delayed at times but I do try to reply as early as I can. Also I generally don't take any 1-1 chats on weekends. Thanks for your understanding)
